July 2, 2022 – 5 pm EST

On Saturday, July 2nd, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie talked with two guests including a pulmonary specialist from the Mayo Clinic and a research scientist – both from the COPD Foundation – who have organized the first annual World Bronchiectasis Day to bring doctors, researchers, educators, and patients from around the world to raise awareness and share resources about this treatable condition.

Bronchiectasis is a lung condition that is often missed and can cause chronic illness. Finding it and starting treatment as early as possible can make a big difference in a patient’s prognosis.

Your Real Champion® “The Stars and Stripes”

As we gather on July 4 to celebrate the birth of our nation, we salute the flag, the symbol of our United States.

Before we broke away from England, each colony had its own flag. The American flag was designed to represent the new union of the 13 original states – hence the 13 stripes, resting side-by-side represent the struggle for independence; red for valor, white for purity, and the field of blue for loyalty.

United we stand!

Each week we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
